The Suhum Area of The Church of Pentecost in 2020 provided educational scholarships to 65 tertiary students worth GH¢ 118,361.30.
The package which mostly involved the payment of academic fees, facility user fees, and SRC dues was spread among both fresh and continuing students.
In an interview, the Area Head, Apostle Anthony Eghan Kwesi Ekuban, accentuated the need to attach much attention to human resource development by ensuring that children are provided with quality education that would make them productive to society.
He further indicated that the church is committed to playing its role in nation-building and one of the strategies is to support brilliant but needy students to realize their aspirations of pursuing higher education. “Poverty should not be a barrier to acquiring the right education and skills development for sustainable livelihood,” he stressed.
Since the launch of the scholarship scheme in 2016, the Suhum Area of the church has assisted students and apprentices with financial support worth GH¢ 307,129.34 to attain academic laurels and vocational skills.
